Yes, #ShirtlessPutin is a thing at the Olympics now

Seems reporters showing up to claim their hotel rooms are finding, in addition to “Soviet chic” room conditions, are annoyed by the art on their walls:

SOCHI (The Borowitz Report)—With the Olympics underway, hundreds of visitors to Sochi are complaining that they checked into expensive hotel rooms only to find them decorated with seminude portraits of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The portraits, showing Mr. Putin shirtless and riding a variety of mammals, adorn the walls of virtually every hotel room constructed especially for the Olympics and were created at a cost of over two million dollars, Olympic officials said.

Putin’s response?

For his part, President Putin has been dismissive of the complaints, today calling the hotel guests “babies who cry.”

Seriously, what could be wrong?
